How I calculated one of many the benefits of homeschooling today…
4 inches of snow – (5-ish more inches needed to cancel local schools) + 36 degree weather + forecast of mid-40s in 2 days [thus the melting of this season’s rare snow again] = 1 sledding hill @ noon with only 8 people [1 of which can’t even crawl] on it (instead of 143-ish) = 0.01% chance of the Somebody’s-Going-to-Crash-into-Me phobia becoming a reality (assuming the team of big brothers who like to tease younger sisters jump out of the way in time) = FUN8
(…well-aware of the hodge-podge snow attire on our 5th child…no need to feel bad for her…3-yr-olds are some of the world’s boldest trend-setters. We could afford matching, but we'll spare the $$ until she notices enough to follow the crowd. )
